Micropen

ECLIPSE MICROPEN tm

The Eclipse Micropen skin needling system allows for controlled induction of the skin's self-repair mechanism by creating micro "injuries" in the skin which trigger new collagen synthesis. The results are smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile Micropen needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site.

After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. The skin's redness will diminish greatly after a few hours following the treatment and within the next 24 hours the skin will be generally calmed. After 3 days the skin will return to a normal or near normal appearance.
